Dear Coronavirus,

I admit. At first, I thought you were merely the "flu." Just novel, just overstated. But, you are stronger than I and the world could have ever imagined. You have wreaked havoc all around the world, and have driven the nations to insanity. You have killed over half a million innocent people, and have endangered tens of millions.

I admit. There was a time when I feared you. You began to control my life. Every news report I watched, every thought I conceived, every action I took - was related to you. You have gone from a "thing" I thought was sensationalized, to an illness that left me feeling empty, tearful, and irate. Every nerve in my body feels exposed when I think of all you have done. All you have taken. Yet, do not be mistaken, I have moved past this foolishness.

I admit. It has taken until this very day for me to realize you are nothing to be feared. For, I will never fear a season. As the snowfall in December and the color of leaves in September, you are ever-changing. Your unpredictability is irksome and causes an uproar. Yet, I will not fear you. If I feared every change in my life, the accomplishments I prize would dwindle like the sand in an hourglass.

I admit. I have decided, at this moment, you will not defeat me. The reason for your coming, I do not know. But, I am here because of mercy. I am here because I have not allowed the rumors and the ways of the world to alarm me. With every person that feels their "freedom" is taken away because of a mask, I remember that we are in an era where there is someone that will take a knee. Even when I feel society has decided to step into the wrong ring, I know I will still be the champion. For, I showed up and poured out the blessings and grace that overflows me.

I admit. I now realize you cannot defeat a child you never knew. You can continue your reign, but I will not fear when I walk through your valley. I am protected. I wear my mask, my gloves, and hold my head high. But, I know in my heart that my true weapon lays not in the gear I don, but in the promise I hold deeply in my heart. My weeping endured for the night, but the morning has come and like the sun's rays, I too will shine.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
